Ron Paul at Liberty

ron_paul_300.jpg

It was a good stump speech, his points were good and well presented. Paul spoke for about an hour to a mostly enthusiastic crowd.  He brought his message of small government and fiscal responsibility, while adding references to his Christian faith and pro-life stance on abortion.  He suggested the U.S. withdraw from the United Nations, and abolish both the Department of Education and national income tax.

Afterwards many students that I spoke with were confused as to why the MSM characterizes him as a lunatic, because they found him to very likable and intelligent. Also, his staffers were collecting signatures for a Ron Paul presidential run in Virginia. They talked as if he will be on the ballot no matter what.

McCain talks to Jonathan ahead of Virginia primary

jonathanf.jpgConservative Christian leaders in Virginia have been fairly quiet about the state’s presidential primaries Tuesday, but the Republican candidates haven’t forgotten them.

The Rev. Jonathan Falwell told the Associated Press that he had talked with John McCain within the past 24 hours. Falwell said he wasn’t ready to endorse a candidate, but wanted to hear more from the Arizona senator on the issues.

“I look forward to seeing what McCain’s plan is to unite the party,” Falwell said, “and to see what he has to say in the coming days on the social agenda.”

Falwell said he wanted to hear McCain’s ideas on national security, the economy and “how to protect human life and traditional marriage.” He also said he was interested in the Arizona senator’s ideas on Supreme Court nominees.

His brother, Jerry Falwell Jr., endorsed Mike Huckabee in November when the former Arkansas governor visited Liberty University.
